Swedish native Rachel Brathen has been practicing yoga since she was a young teen. After graduating school she traveled to Costa Rica and it was here that she found the joy of incorporating yoga into her everyday life. Deepening her yoga practice and also taking her first steps towards teaching, she ended up moving to Central America where she spent years exploring the intricate studies of yoga and spirituality. After moving to Aruba in early 2010, she started teaching yoga full time on this Caribbean island.

In this Vinyasa style flow class we will create plenty of heat, diving deep into our practice to explore our physical space on the mat. We will work handstands and arm balances into our transitions, finding the courage to little by little get our feet off the mat and up into the sky. By expanding the breath and working our core we connect to our center strength, finding a place of stillness in the midst of movement. Expect fun transitions between traditional poses and plenty of opportunities to balance on your hands! Suitable for all levels – no previous handstand experience needed.

Rachel is always eager to introduce people to the bliss of practicing yoga, providing every student with a space to safely play in the art of yoga. Join Rachel for a flow class appropriate for all levels plus a Q&A session. Please bring a yoga mat & water bottle.

Rachel’s highly anticipated first book—YOGA GIRL— will be published in the US on March 24, 2015 by Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster. Part self-help and part memoir, YOGA GIRL is an inspirational, beautifully illustrated book featuring step-by-step yoga sequences as well as simple recipes for a healthy, happy, and fearless lifestyle. Rachel will do a number of book signing events in select cities.

The Happiness Tour kicks off in San Francisco on April 4 and continues through the spring wrapping up May 16 in Los Angeles with more dates potentially being added. Tickets on sale Friday, February 27 at 10am local time. Visit for complete details, as well as a list of her book signing events.
